Re: 2011 Schedule

^I totally agree! I mean she's a pro, she plays all year every year since she was a little baby. While the off-season regime can help, it's ultimately her game and head that make the difference and if she is that low in confidence it's a very weak sign.

"Hajrá Ági" no insults meant at all, and I'm glad we can have a rational discussion (unlike most people on this board) I just have lost faith this lack of confidence is disconcerting and while Ági has made the occasional improvement since 2007, it has essentially been backward progress. You say she is working hard to get back and all, but unfortunately at this point, I don't really believe it anymore, and if she is working hard, she clearly has extremely inefficient methods, as a player with far less talent can be number one while she struggles to be top forty. This year also was just crazy, she had flashes of impressive form, but she was plagued the entire year by a thigh strain, which to anyone else is a minor injury, I've never heard of a thigh strain taking a year to recover from. As for this virus, she also gets sick all the time so might be time to change the diet or something.

My number one: Victoria Azarenka

ATP: Novak Djoković

Re: 2011 Schedule

Okay just kidding, she's not so I guess that means she'll probably play Acapulco and Monterrey again . IMO if she's playing those two it makes sense to play Bogota as well though that draw is a fucking cakewalk.

Re: 2011 Schedule

Still really disappointed she won't play AO, but I suppose she felt she needed more time to prepare. It's time for a change anyway, what she has been doing the last couple years hasn't really been working, maybe this odd schedule will help her. Having said that, most people would play. People rarely skip slams unless they have to.

Re: 2011 Schedule

So after Paris she is scheduled for NO tournaments until Indian Wells. I think there is something wrong/weird with her that she's not letting on .

Re: 2011 Schedule

Her schedule is always a mess
I hope she plays a lot of clay MM's, but she will probably think she is too good for them and then she will just play Rome and Madrid

Re: 2011 Schedule

I hope she will play Charleston then. Had some good results on green clay in 2008. But why she needs 3 weeks break after 2 tournaments and one month disadvantage... I think I will just use the usual Ági smilyes

Well there's clay International's called Bogota and Acapulco, which she is a completely fucking dumbass not to play. They have easier lists than usual this year too . At least Acapulco does.

Yes, she really should play Charleston!!!

Re: 2011 Schedule

Oh. My. God.

I'm starting to wonder if she's going to retire or something signs have been very strange lately.

Re: 2011 Schedule

Ridiculous.
She ends her year earlier because of the thigh strain, was ill for at least a month then got a back injury? She won't retire but it's even worse, I always wait for her to play finally, there are good signs too and she always pulls off in the last minute

Re: 2011 Schedule

Is Paris likely or not?

Also, she better go cheer for the Fed Cup team or something because otherwise she won't be able to play the Olympics .

Re: 2011 Schedule

^I think she can still play. You have to play 2 years from 2009-2012. She already played 2009, so if she plays in 2012 then she will be fine
